Boomplay, the largest music streaming and download service in Africa, marked its extended Mother’s Day celebrations by donating Covid-19 essentials and cleaning materials to the Maternity Ward of the Greater Accra Regional Hospital, to support the hospital’s efforts of safe and reliable maternal health. The music company also donated gift items to all mothers in the post-natal ward of the hospital.
Speaking during the donation ceremony held at the hospital over the weekend, Elizabeth Ntiamoah-Quarshie, the Country Manager for Boomplay Ghana, said the donation was part of an ongoing CSR initiative by Boomplay aimed at supporting key areas of society and impacting lives
“We believe mothers are the backbone of society. Therefore as part of our Mother’s Day campaign this year, we decided to focus on maternal health and mothers with newly-born babies. We are elated to donate these items to the hospital and mothers in the Maternity Ward. As a company, we remain committed to playing our part in the society, with the aim of creating impact and leaving a mark in the lives of many. Thus, we hope to do more in the near future,” Elizabeth Ntiamoah-Quarshie intimated.
Her sentiments were echoed by Mr. Simon Awok-Badek, Health Service Administrator of the Greater Accra Regional Hospital, who received the donation on behalf of the hospital’s management. He expressed sincere gratitude to Boomplay for the kind gesture.
“It is noble of you (Boomplay) to remember mothers on Mother’s Day and decide to put a smile on their faces. Equally noble is your company’s gesture of not letting the guards down regarding the fight against Covid-19 by presenting the hospital with Covid-19 essentials. We can only urge you continue supporting us and other key areas of society,” Mr. Simon Awok-Badek concluded.
The Boomplay team were then led by other hospital staff, Mr. Akrasi (Administrator-on-Duty) and Madam Millicent Krampah (Senior Nursing Officer in-Charge), to the Post-Natal Ward where all mothers with newly born babies were each given a gift bag containing food provisions and home souvenirs. The items donated to the hospital, however, included 4 gallons each of antiseptic, disinfectant and liquid soap, 40 bottles of sanitizers, 70 boxes of nose masks, a carton of medicated soap, a carton of washing soap, 2 sacks of washing powder, 10 jumbo size paper towels, 350 pieces of toilet roll and 10 packs of water.
Earlier last week and as part of its 2021 Mother’s Day campaign, Boomplay had partnered with a select number of artistes on its streaming platform including Efya, Mr. Drew and Yaw Tog to surprise their moms on Mother’s Day with a gift package. The videos capturing the surprise moments will be up on the social media pages of the artistes and Boomplay this week.
